todaysdocument:

This photoset is from the Gemini X Mission which took place from July 18-21, 1966.  In our catalog, you can view 347 images from this mission. 

The photos above were taken on July 19, 1966 and include images of Africa, Florida, Hurricane Celia, the inside of Gemini X, and clouds.  

I think this is my favorite photoset so far. The juxtaposition of the perspectives of Earth visible through the tiny window mixed with the center shot of a human being who actually saw all those perspectives is a powerful combination. Also, it’s bad ass.
